We couldn't be more please with the rental of the Riverbend Cabins. Bruce and Debi are fabulous hosts with a welcome gift and provided everything needed to enjoy the peace of the country and yet close to Fairbanks and various activities including aurora viewing, dog sled rides, museums and many delicious restaurants. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchenware for... More

While searching for a Fairbanks hotel for 4 nights starting Christmas, we quickly discovered we were too late: every single hotel we called was completely booked. One of the reservationists we spoke to had heard there was a recent cancellation at Riverbend Log Cabins, and so we called there. We were fortunate everything was booked, because it led us to...

Debi and Bruce were the best hosts and if they lived near us, we'd be the best of friends. Both cabins are decorated with thought, care and warmth. Take Debi's advice for dog sledding as we had the most authentic experience us lower 48-ers could have had in one afternoon. The owner/musher even asked us to stay for dinner. People... More

We had the most wonderful week staying in the Chinook cabin in December. The cabin has everything you will need, they are very warm and comfortable, and situated in a beautiful place that is easy to find.

The Sourdough Cabin at Riverbend was exactly what we needed for a relaxing stay in Fairbanks. The cabin is very clean and very well maintained. The downstairs, fully stocked kitchen and living room provide everything to cook a meal and plan your time in the area, as a binder full of helpful information is provided. The upstairs of the cabin... More

My wife and I along with a longtime couple spent 5 nights in the Chinook log cabin just a couple hundred feet from the Chena River.

We had a great 5-day stay in the Chinook cabin! The property is beautiful, great log architecture, nearby river right at the backyard, and the cabin featured all the advertised amenities (wifi, kitchen, jetted tub, etc). However, it's the un-advertised touches that really made it special... fresh flowers, spotlessly clean, a personal welcome left by our hosts for us, etc.... More
